How to get rid of joint pain

Ranking of the best joint creams - Updated on: 24.10.2022

Joint problems always make our life a misery. Pain, inflammations and swellings hinder physical activity and normal functioning, especially for elderly people. Fortunately, effective creams for joints come to the rescue - the best way to eliminate pain and other joint problems.

No pills, capsules or other methods can match the effectiveness of creams. Creams work exactly where the problem occurs. We apply them directly to the problematic joint. The active substances are absorbed immediately, soothing pain and regenerating cartilages much faster than tablets. There is also no risk of stomach irritations or interactions with your other medications.

The causes of joint problems are different: young people are more prone to injuries, contusions, overburdening, etc. Older people suffer from joint degeneration, many years of mechanical stress, arthritis or osteoarthritis. The best joint creams should help in all cases.

Beflexan is currently the best choice for anyone who wants to repair their joints. This joint ointment is just as good at dealing with mechanical injuries as it is with ailments caused by age or disease.

For young and old

Beflexan has a good reputation among many athletes. The product helps them get rid of injuries before the next match or competition.
Elders also speak positively about Beflexan. It quickly alleviates joint pain and restores full mobility. Beflexan allows you to return to your favourite daily activities that were impossible or difficult to perform due to the pain.

Rich composition

The success of Beflexan is due to its natural composition and proven effectiveness. marsh cinquefoil, comfrey, mountain arnica, calendula - these are just a few plant extracts with strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Chondroitin and glucosamine can be found in cartilages, synovial fluid and Beflexan. They are essential to the proper functioning and regeneration of joints.

Fast results

Beflexan also receives positive reviews in this aspect. The users reported the first results after just a few days. The joint ointment itself absorbs quickly and leaves no traces on the skin. What is more, it has a pleasant fragrance (this is due to the presence of oils, e.g. menthol).

At the moment, Beflexan is the best choice due to its effectiveness for all joint problems.

Opinions

Veronica

My mother is not an internet user, so she won't write an opinion herself. On her behalf, I want to share that Beflexan improved her quality of life. My mom has been struggling with joint pain for a long time. She took some pills in the past, unfortunately, they did not help much, so we decided it was high time to try an ointment. Beflexan helped her a lot. The product is easy to use and absorbs quickly. Most importantly, my mum started to move again. For example, I can see that it is much easier for her to climb the stairs now.

Michael

Hey! I recommend Beflexan for minor injuries. It perfectly reduces swellings and regenerates the joint. It saved me more than once on my trips when something bad happened. Now, Beflexan is an absolute must-have in my backpack.

Artrive

Artrive is a cream for joints, which gives similar results as other products from the category. Namely, it reduces pain, swelling, inflammation, and helps with joint diseases.

4 active ingredients

The main 4 ingredients of Artrive are marsh cinquefoil, menthol, comfrey and the commonly known basket plant. These are proven plants that are also used in other joint creams.

Medium effectiveness, long treatment

Artrive reduces pain and helps with inflammations. Its effectiveness is rated quite well, although it is definitely not the best joint cream you can find on the market. The disadvantage of the product is the recommended application time - over 30 days.

Do not mix with alcohol

Another disadvantage of Artrive is the fact that you cannot use it together with other substances. For example, you should not drink any alcohol while using the cream.

Artrive can be a good choice, as long as you do not mind waiting for results and restrictions related to its use.

Opinions

Darlene

The price doesn't match the efficiency at all. You pay a lot and the results are mediocre. The product has a greasy texture and does not absorb. If only the results were OK the product would be good, but since the effects are also mediocre, I do not recommend it.

The next place belongs to Arthrolon cream. However, it is rated much lower than the winner of the ranking. It is intended mainly for those who struggle with arthritis.

Average effectiveness in case of injuries

Arthrolon received good ratings for eliminating joint pain associated with age and joint degeneration. It is less effective when it comes to injuries.

NEED TO WAIT LONG FOR RESULTS

The product's official websites mention that it takes 20 days to see results, but customers reported that they had to wait up to a month on average. The cream should be used 3 times a day, which is problematic for some.

2 formulas? Be sure to check what you buy!

Customers mention that two different formulas exist under the name Arthrolon. We have investigated this and some pages report that the formula includes pepper extract, mint and collagen. Other sources mention ingredients such as hell root and maclura extract. Therefore, people who are interested in buying Arthrolon should be very careful which product they are purchasing.

Arthrolon, despite the 3rd place, has some distinct drawbacks. Its effectiveness, especially in the case of mechanical injuries, could be higher.

Opinions

Kate

Arthrolon works but you have to wait a little and use it regularly!

Matthew

I ordered Arthrolon because my joint pain was getting more and more annoying. I felt the first results only after the second tube, so after a good few weeks. This cream did not eliminate all my troubles (my joints still hurt, but a little less), but the effects are visible. Shame that you have to wait so long for the results.

Hondrostrong takes 4th place in the ranking. The product promises to alleviate joint pain, numbness and the reconstruction of the joints.

Good for injuries

The ranking clearly shows that Hondrostrong does not fully meet the customers' expectations. The product alleviates pain, but it does not work for chronic joint problems. It does not reduce inflammation, nor does it help with joint degeneration. The cream reduces swellings well but it's not enough for such an expensive cream.

Warning! The product contains bee venom!

The active ingredients of this cream are yerba mate leaf juice, bee venom (WARNING! Bee venom can be highly allergenic. Is it really a product for everyone?) and green clams. Unfortunately, this is a unique and new formula that is not proven. Therefore, it is difficult to say more about its actual effectiveness.
The product contains only 3 active ingredients, which is pretty low compared to other creams. This may be the reason for its average effectiveness.

Convenient bottle

Hondrostrong is contained in a bottle with a dispenser bottle. It is a very convenient solution.

We can only recommend Hondrostrong if you are looking for something to reduce swelling after an injury and alleviate pain at the same time (but not full pain relief). However, keep in mind that the product is expensive and contains bee venom.

Opinions

Violette

This cream did not help me at all. It absorbs well, it is easy to get the right amount from the bottle, but ... it doesn't work.

Martin

I strained my joints while working out at the gym. I used Hondrostrong 3 times a day and I am quite satisfied with it. It helped.

Imosteon is the last joint ointment in our ranking at the moment. According to the manufacturer, the cream is supposed to increase joint mobility and alleviate pain. But how does Imosteon really work?

Slight improvement for a short time

Customers say that Imosteon has average effectiveness. It relieves the pain a little, but for a short time. Joint mobility is improved to a small extent and even the long use of the cream does not improve anything in this matter. Imosteon does not eliminate swelling or morning stiffness, so it will not be a good choice for physically active people or the elderly.

Formula for muscles, not joints

The composition of Imosteon includes several ingredients: menthol, capsaicin, horse chestnut, caffeine and ginkgo. Neither of these substances is known to affect joints. Horse chestnut is an ingredient often found in creams for varicose veins because it improves blood flow. This composition has a greater effect on muscles rather than joints.

Long absorption

After applying the cream (approx. 3 times a day) you must wait for it to be absorbed. During this time you cannot cover it with any material.

Imosteon gives a slight and unfortunately quite short improvement. However, if you are looking for something for sore muscles, you can try this cream.

Opinions

Witek

Imosteon is, in my opinion, a decent cream for joints. It may not give you any great results and it will not regenerate your damaged knees. I noticed that my joints hurt less and it is a little easier to move. It is definitely a positive change.

I've been waiting for such a ranking. Straight to the point (I am an amateur soccer player).

Sosa

Ranking of the best and some of the products have average ratings.

Iza

The 1st place has quite high ratings

Former

My joints have been overburdened for a long time and I tried all of the creams from this ranking. I used so many products to help my joints and these ratings are true. These are indeed the best creams because there are many even less effective products on the market.

Anna

I'm looking for an alternative to Artrive - it doesn't work for me. Thanks in advance.

Kaz

What? You are asking such a question on the ranking of the best products !!!

RegularEveryDayNormalMF

F**k me... Some people don't even want to read a short article. Woman, just take a look at the first place if you don't want to get too deep into the subject.

Noah

Beflexan is a very good cream. I am a physiotherapist so I know a little about such products. Always look at the ingredients and you will not be disappointed

Sophia

artrive and arthrolone smell terribly. now I'm using some other cream because my joints still hurt :((((((((

Mia

My dear, most of us suffer the same fate, I wish you all the best :/

Jola

This ranking is strange.

Mattias

Joint ointments are specific products. Only a few of them are good. The manufacturers think that if they put 3 ingredients in a cream, it will work because it's a cream. It doesn't work that way. Ingredients need to be added in appropriate amounts and mixed to enhance their properties. Choose other ingredients for consistency. Difficult case. The ranking is correct. Although I know other more effective creams than the last 2-3 from the ranking.

Lucas

What are the names of the products?

Mattias

No need for that...

Emma

My old man was very tired of his joints. He did not want to swallow any pills, so I convinced him to try an ointment. Befrexan helped him a lot. If I could give him a grade, it would be a 10.

Ruth

Can Beflexan be bought abroad?

Mario

Yes. Go to the their official website

Alicia

An ointment with bee venom is not a good idea!
